Their logo may be a trademark, but that doesn't mean they have any right to ask that a film containing their trademark be removed from IA. IA isn't appropriating anyone's trademark. The logo is just advertisement, which is something which users here have to suffer.

Just think of all the secondhand items at Goodwill or on eBay. Can companies stop them from selling or giving away their trademarked items?

Video companies putting their TM on a video is one thing, but isn't it different when a tv network puts their logo onscreen? If it doesn't matter, then there would be tons of more movies I could put up. I mean I'm not sure what the ruling would be, but I personally tend to avoid uploading movies recorded from tv because of network logos just as a matter of form. I'll admit some of the items I've put up have a small , generic "SC" at the bottom right of the screen, but I stand by the right to use this particular material.

Here are a couple of posts where Video Cellar comments on watermark logos. Also I believe TCM puts the same
logo on the DVD's that they distribute.

My reading of what Video-Cellar wrote, and common sense tell me that a trademark (logo), including those for TV networks and cable networks, whether registered or not, has no bearing on a movie's suitability for posting to IA. It's basically just advertising for the source of the material. It has no legal impact on copyright, and no claim of trademark infringement can be made against IA or those that upload movies with trademarks.

However, it would be cool if you could cover the logos with the software Moongleam mentions. It won't run on my machine.

I have VirtualDub installed on my computer. Is Region Remove Filter a standard filter or did you download it somewhere?

Thanks

You need to ask this of Moongleam, sorry.

Avidemux will do the same, it's free and runs in Linux and Windows.

Hey Moongleam, on the Region Remove filter what format do you use to enter the frame data in the "Frame ON/OFF" box? I searched Google but couldn't find a tutorial.

Thanks

Each line has two numbers (integers) separated by a space. The first number is the frame when the filter should start, and the 2nd number is the frame when the filter should be turned off.

Example:

9000 9600
12333 12888

I'm not an expert on Region Remove since I actually use Avisynth to cover up watermarks.

An example of the result of removing a non-continuous watermark:

The Region Remove Filter for VirtualDub lets you cover up watermarks.
